of the senate. president obama invoked that recess appointment power a year ago to fill vacancies that senate republicans refused to act on. three spots on the national labor relations board and richard cordray to run the new consumer financial protection bureau. but today a three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in washington said that power can only be used between the end of one session of congress and the beginning of another, not during any congressional break. and the court said it can be used only to fill spots that become vacant during those recesses. presidents of both parties have made more than 300 recess appointments. thurgood marshall, earl warren and william brennan got on the supreme court that way before being confirmed. it's how john bolten was made u.n. ambassador. and larry eagleburger, secretary of state. so the obama administration seems certain to appeal this to the supreme court, brian. >> huge decision today. pete williams from our d.c. newsroom tonight. pete, thanks. >>> president filled a big job today that does not require congressional approval. he named a
